Here is the lovely little lap quilt, I made using that delightful fabric I won. My lovely friend Judith said that sometimes a title for a quilt will just happen during the making and that is exactly what happened whilst I was burning the midnight oil making this quilt. It reminded me off slings and arrows. This then made me think of Hamlets Soliloquy. To be, or not to be: that is the question: "Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them?" This is the first few lines. This Quilt is called Slings and Arrows and it was very quick to make. I am looking forward to layering it and I am thinking feather quilting all over, in keeping with the arrows theme.
